Signs it's Time for In-Home Care

You’ve noticed mom’s dishes and laundry piling up. Or bruises on your father’s arms. Maybe your loved one is having trouble remembering their appointments or you’re seeing slight changes in their personality. As our loved ones age, they may face memory loss, illness, and frailty. Everyday activities can become increasingly difficult for your mother or father, but it may be even more difficult for them to admit that they need help. While it’s not an easy conversation to have, it is an important one. If you notice some of these signs, it may be time to consider FootPrints Home Care to provide in-home services for your loved one.

Serving the Underserved


A message from FootPrints Home Care President & CEO Brian Fletcher

I used to think leadership was about competence, hard work, and vision. I've since learned that leadership is about humility. Competence, hard work, and vision are important traits, but humility matters most because through it I have learned many lessons about the significance of the work we do. I have learned that I am not the boss, I am the steward. The steward of this business and the jobs it creates, the steward of the community impact we have, and most importantly, the steward of our culture.

Engaging with Elderly Loved Ones

Engaging with Elderly Loved Ones

The University of Rochester Medical Center claims "Staying socially active and maintaining interpersonal relationships can help you maintain good physical and emotional health and cognitive function". Yet these interactions can be difficult to come by for those in greatest need: elderly individuals who find themselves alone for long periods of time.

Having another human presence in your loved one's home is understandably important for mitigating common risks among the elderly like falls, medication management errors, and meal preparation. But its most underrated benefit is companionship--ensuring they maintain a level of social interaction to keep their minds sharp and their emotions positive.

CAR BURGLARIES are very difficult cases to solve due to the burglars usually leaving very little physical evidence behind after a car burglary has occurred. The crimes usually occur in business parking lots and residential streets and driveways at night, when it is less likely the thieves will be seen. Some of the most common places we have seen car burglaries are locations where people are doing some type of physical activity requiring them to leave their valuables behind in their vehicle. Burglars will target parking lots that include businesses, shopping malls, and gyms.

In order to help reduce the rise of becoming a victim of a car burglary we have provided some easy tips to follow. ALWAYS close your windows and lock your car doors. An open window or unlocked door is an invitation to a criminal.

APD on Keeping Your Home Secure

There are no such thing as burglar-proof homes. What there is, however, is using a burglar’s double criteria of speedy entry and not attracting attention—are homes that are too difficult to break in to.

The enemies of the burglar are time and attention. The longer it takes to enter and the more noise he makes increase his chances of being seen and caught. Homes not easily and quickly broken into are most often bypassed for easier targets.

"Fall Back" on November 1st

"Fall Back" on November 1st

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends on November 1st at 2:00 am which will actually be 1:00 am as we “fall back”. The mornings will get lighter, the evenings will get darker, and the days will get shorter. The best thing? We get an extra hour of sleep. The worst thing? We lose an hour of daylight each day making for short winter nights. When we “spring forward” it’s the opposite, we lose an hour of sleep in the transition, but we gain an extra hour of daylight each day, making for long summer days.

Preparing for Flu Season

Unfortunately, it’s that time of year again. Throughout 2015 The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been tracking the influenza virus in preparation for its peak activity and in early October started publishing data on the 2015-2016 flu season. While cautious in its predictions on this season’s severity, the CDC is urging everyone to get vaccinated, especially seniors.
